Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer
I had the same problem with my FAV6800 and after testing that the dispenser valve was operating properly during the fast cycle test but not during a regular load. I decided to test the water pressure to the unit and that was it. The line filters were clogged and the low water pressure created several problems for this unit. Be it the dispenser not being flushed, incomplete rinse cycles, low water on wash cycle. If the unit cannot get enough water into it during the allotted time to fill during wash, rinse, repeat. It simply moves onto the next cycle and does a crappy job. So clean your lines, as mine has never operated this good.

I'll see if I can help. Can you just clarify if by won't drain. Does it look like no water flow is flushing the the Bleach and Fabric Softener dispensers?
The Fabric Softener dispenser could be clogged but I suspect the dispenser’s valves are not opening to flush the dispenser’s. If the Fabric Softener dispenser is clogged you can flush with White Vinegar solution and clean exit port with a pipe cleaner. I do not suspect a clog with the Bleach dispenser.
You could go into Service Mode and turn on the water valves for the dispensers to check if water is sent to the dispensers.
If you have no water flow to the Softener dispenser here is the non technical troubleshooting I would take. Go into Service Mode (page 14 of the Service manual) by Pressing Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys (simultaneously) for three seconds or until the console beeps.
Now go to page 16 to Service Manual and enter Board Output Test by pressing the Delicates key. This will lock the lid. Now press the Wrinkle Control Key Pad on the console. The Control Board will send 120VAC to the bleach dispenser water valve. Did you hear the Solenoid hum? If so and you have no water flow diverted to the Softener dispenser the solenoid valve may be stuck closed. If you did not hear the solenoid valve hum the solenoid field coil may be open. Do the same process for the Bleach dispenser water valve with Bulky Items Key Pad.
Final technical troubleshooting as a technical owner of the machine would be to take my DVM and verify 120VAC from the Control Board to the Bleach/Fabric Softener dispenser valves.
See page 36 lower left hand corner is the Bleach/Softener dispenser valve.
Here is the Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.

lid lock assembly look for forum response by dh1200s.
You are going to need a complete L.H. Lid lock assembly. p/n 25001048 Google for best price.
You have the issue of the Lid Locks no releasing so even after a replacemant L.H. Lid lock assembly (not cheap) you have the root cause issue to troubleshoot.
If you want to troubleshoot Google this ""Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW"" a forum where I help owners of the FAV6800A and FAV9800A machines.
